And The Winner Is… Lina Nguyen

The winner of the Grand PooBah Incentive is Lina Nguyen.

Lina will work with me for 90 days (or more) to rank a website from scratch to number one on Google. It is our aim to get the site to #1 in that time, so let’s see how we go. The name of the site and the domain name will be announced after Lina and I have a meeting to discuss the path we will take in this SEO Case Study: From Lina To Legend In 90 Days!

I hope you don’t mind the title, Lina πŸ˜‰

SEO Case Study

Just like the previous SEO Case Study, all our members with YOTACADEMY will enjoy live videos and reports on this site. It is my aim that this website will turn into a big income earner for Lina Nguyen and her partner Dean. They have chosen a topic that they are extremely passionate about and you will find that it will be an absolute pleasure to follow the process and success of this SEO Case Study.

Congratulations: Lina Nguyen

Lina displayed a lot of character and passion with her submission. She had fierce competition from the other contestants and it was incredibly hard to decide on a winner. At the end of the day, Lina Nguyen is a worthy winner and she fits all the criteria that I set for the competition. Knowing that Dean will be behind her 100% and that he is a keen photographer will certainly help Lina and me build a huge following for this website community.

Make sure to wish her well in the comments below.

Congratulations to Lina Nguyen. Well done!

    I have been following your progress since you first burst on to the scene in the forum and know you have the work ethic that is required. I am sure it won’t take 90 days to be top of the hill.
